Bedell Blackbird Vegan Orchestra

$2,490

Bedell Blackbird Vegan Orchestra guitar is the ultimate forest stewardship guitar in addition to its vegan friendly construction. Inspired by the beauty and wonder of the American landscape: the streams and deserts, swamps and forests, beaches and valleys, and all the magnificent animals that grace this vast and diverse country, from shore to shore.

The Bedell Blackbird Vegan models aren’t just sustainable, they’re also built using only American harvested woods: a salvaged Sitka spruce soundboard, Western bigleaf maple back and sides, an Eastern hard rock maple neck, and a walnut fretboard, bridge and peghead overlay. Bedell craftsmen have achieved unparalleled tone and projection from these plentiful American woods for a truly planet-friendly guitar made from ethically harvested trees. The Bedell Blackbird Vegan features a nitrocellulose finish with a translucent black burst and is available in dreadnought, orchestra and parlor body shapes. All Blackbird models include a workshop-installed K&K Pure Mini pickup and a Bedell deluxe hardshell case.
